Middlesboro ARH Welcomes First Newborn of 2016


Middlesboro ARH Hospital welcomed its first baby of the new year born on January 2, 2016.

At 12:43 a.m., Meredith Eades, Middlesboro ARH Certified Nurse Midwife, delivered Grayson Jaxon Ott. He weighed 8 pounds and 6 ounces, and was 20 inches long. Parents are Aundria Seigler and Jason Ott. Grayson has one brother and three sisters: Landon, age 7; Olivia, age 4; Aleeah, age 2; and Alaina, age 1.  The family resides in Tazewell, Tn.

As the first baby born at Middlesboro ARH in 2016, the hospital gave Grayson and his family a large, baby bathtub full of items every baby needs including a baby monitor. The family also received a $100 gift certificate from Food City’s Baby Club along with Baby Club items.

Middlesboro ARH Hospital offers private labor-delivery-recovery rooms with private baths in a home-like atmosphere where the focus is on a family-centered birthing experience. Once the baby is born, the hospital offers rooming in for parents and baby to enhance newborn teaching with a newborn nursery nurse available and dedicated to this service 24 hours a day.

OB-GYN physicians Dr. Nathan Mullins, Dr. John Williamson, and Midwife Meredith Eades, and OB nursing staff provide individualized care for moms and babies.

Middlesboro ARH Hospital also offers a comfortable nursery with a state-of-the-art security system.

“Location, comfort and hospitality supported by a team of highly experienced physicians and nurses are important when selecting an environment to give birth,” said Rhonda Hensley, OB Nurse Manager at Middlesboro ARH.

In 2015, 252 babies were delivered at Middlesboro ARH Hospital.
